DNC Chair Statement on Wolf Victory
“Tom Wolf’s resounding victory tonight makes him the first challenger to defeat an incumbent Pennsylvania governor since the state’s one-term limit was eliminated in the 1970s. Tom has the experience and leadership to bring manufacturing jobs back to the state and create good paying jobs for middle class families.
“The result speaks to how deeply unpopular Tom Corbett’s Republican policies on economics and women’s health have been with Pennsylvania voters and the urgency with which voters sought to return the state to Democratic leadership. Congratulations to Governor-elect Wolf, his campaign team, and the people of Pennsylvania.”
